the city of dallas

As a major metropolis in North Texas, Dallas is brimming with culture, entertainment, and palate-pleasing delights. Balancing western charm and contemporary flair, the city draws thousands of new residents each year. With dozens of properties scattered through DFW, we consider Dallas one of our many homes. Whether you’d like to settle into the bustling streets of downtown at Third Rail Lofts or prefer to live on the edge of the excitement at The Mark on Midtown Park in Preston Hollow, you can find a Lincoln home in this vibrant city.

EAT: There aren’t many cravings you can’t satisfy in the city of Dallas. When it comes to exceptional dining, the only concern Dallasites have are the endless options to choose from. Are you craving classic Texan barbecue or a prix fix menu from one of the city’s top chefs? If melt-in-your-mouth brisket is on your agenda, we recommend a trip to Ferris Wheeler’s Backyard and Barbecue. This smokehouse and adult playground hybrid offers all the classics such as honey-glazed turkey breast, pulled pork, and Texas brisket. You may be asking yourself, “and how does this Texan barbecue joint stand out from the rest?” Well, this carnival-style smokehouse boasts a 50-foot Ferris wheel in its backyard. After putting back a rack of ribs, guests can kick back on a 360-degree ride that offers some killer views. If you’re celebrating a special occasion, or simply enjoy the finer things in life, head to Sache for gourmet bites and carefully-selected wines. Opt for the Ibirico Secreto, an acorn-fed pork that’s prepared like a fine cut of beef.


SEE: Nature lovers abound on the Dallas Arboretum 12 months a year. Seasonal displays, festive events, and lush greenery are what makes this verdant oasis such a destination for tourists and locals alike. Admission is just $5 and gives you access to the endless gardens. If you’re looking for more than just a scenic stroll, The Dallas Arboretum offers daily tastings of recipes made with vegetables harvested from the grounds as well as afternoon tea amongst the flora. For those who prefer to enjoy their music in the fresh air, the arboretum hosts a summer concert series featuring local talent. The colder months offer a Live Music Lunch starting at 11 AM on weekends! This week features pianist Lee Harbargh and his soothing melodies. There’s truly something to do every day of the week and every month of the year at the Dallas Arboretum. Click here to find upcoming events.

DO: When crafting your Dallas bucket list, it may be hard to limit your checklist to one page. The city is brimming with cultural and recreational activities to fill your day. When looking to break a sweat, head over to the Santa Fe Trail with your bike and take in the rushing water of the Trinity River as you sail by. Afterwards, reward yourself by taking a seat at Dallas Comedy House. This venue features only the best comedians and also offers classes to those who aspire to hit the stage. After a day of scenic biking and gut laughs, treat yourself to the city’s grandest sundae at Hypnotic Emporium. The Mt. Hypnotic is piled high with 20 scoops of ice cream topped with whipped cream, caramel, hot fudge, peanuts, Sixlets candy, Charleston Chews, and a doughnut. For the casual diner, we suggest sharing the massive delight with friends. For those who love a challenge, we recommend an empty stomach and an aversion to brain freezes. If finished in 30 minutes by one individual, the sundae is free!
